One happy dog, doing her favorite thing ever - going for a ride!

Approaching Winston-Salem, and the colors are starting to pop.

Pilot Mountain, near Mount Airy, NC. For fans of the Andy Griffith Show, this is what they called Mt. Pilot. Andy grew up in Mount Airy, which is the basis for Mayberry.

View from an overlook on Squirrel Spur Road, a twisty, steep road that runs from Ararat, VA to Meadows of Dan, VA. Pilot Mountain is in the distance.

The colors were gorgeous all along Squirrel Spur Road.

Entering the Blue Ridge Parkway!

Another view of Pilot Mountain, this time from an overlook on the BRP.

While the colors on the trees along the Parkway were mostly past peak, the meadows were still stunningly green. I couldn't stop photographing this.

Mabry Mill, in Meadows of Dan, VA. About 200 miles northwest of home. This is as far north as we went before turning around to make our way back home.

The ducks were mooning us.

????? These photos bring back memories. When I was a kid growing up in Virginia, my family used to drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway every fall to enjoy nature's beauty. Thank you for sharing.

focussed Holy Cow... How did I miss this set?!?!?!?! I thought we got to see some spectacular autumn colours around here but, wowsers!!!! The contrast of the colours against the green rolling hills is breathtaking.
What exactly is that cottage in the last #3 shots??
PS. Not sure Ive seen a happier looking dog! Did Sugar get to run around and scare the ducks?..

tbranscum Wow, beautiful set. I love Mayberry and Andy. Sometimes I think I grew up in a town like that.
